Overview

What is it about a dressed-up dog that’s so irresistible? Fortunately, most pups patiently put up with this foolishness—and that just heightens the hilarity. Never has doggie-wear come wilder, wackier, and wittier than these 33 designs from Emmy(R)-nominated TV craft hostess, Cathie Filian. Cathy’s own furry friend, Max, has tested them all out and enthusiastically barked his approval of this funny, irreverent collection.
Best of all, dog-crazy but sewing-challenged humans will appreciate how easy these colorful clothes are to stitch. (Some simply involve embellishing a store-bought costume.) All the projects are based on two easily adjustable basic patterns: one consists of a top and a skirt; the other, a cape. Among the delightfully stylish extras: a fluffy collar, top hat, leg wraps, and more.
The cool canine attire includes such Halloween favorites as a witch, cowgirl, fire patrol dog, and skeleton, plus more unusual designs, like a sea dragon and candy striper. Many reflect the popularity of certain people costumes, such as Elvis, surfer dude, biker babe, and Red Hat Ladies. Some come in pairs, like the bride and groom. Each project is charmingly photographed on an adorable dog, accompanied by laugh-out-loud captions that enhance this one-of-a-kind book’s appeal.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The cuteness factor of this book almost overwhelms the practical content. This is the pet parade gone wild, with page after page of canine models posed in an array of handmade costumes for Halloween, Christmas, and summer fun. Sure to be a favorite in public libraries.

I watch Cathie on Creative Juice and just adore her. When I saw her new book at the trade show it brought a huge smile to my face. All the dog costumes are designed to the nines and the patterns look pretty easy. Way to GO! A must for any dog lover.
